In this episode of Thrive Bites, I sit down with Michelle and discuss how fitness came into her life and how she uses that as a tool for chronic pain and also finding balance in our lives!
"I was born and raised in Houston, TX, and graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 2002 with a BA in Biology and a minor in Music. I earned my MD at the McGovern Medical School (UT Houston) and matched into anesthesiology residency at UTMB in Galveston. After graduating from residency, I moved to San Antonio, TX where I completed my fellowship in interventional pain management at UTHSC-San Antonio. I moved back to Houston in 2012 and began practicing pain management in the Greater Houston area.
After practicing pain management for several years, I noticed that my patients were still suffering, and I knew that there must be a way to help my patients lead to higher-quality lives. I consider myself an avid yogi since 2012 and had the opportunity to complete my 200-hour yoga teacher certification in 2014 and restorative yoga certification in 2015. After doing some searching, I stumbled upon integrative medicine and found a way to meld the two worlds of yoga and medicine together. I completed the integrative medicine fellowship with the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (founded by Dr. Andrew Weil) in the fall of 2018. I am currently in the process of completing a health coaching program through the National Society of Health Coaches.
I am a part of Texas Orthopedic and Sports Medicine with 2 locations in North Houston - Tomball and The Woodlands, where I offer my patients a variety of modalities to manage their pain."
